N24 is a television news channel based in Germany. It is owned N24 Media GmbH. It was previously owned and operated by ProSiebenSat.1 Media. N24 provides regular news updates to ProSiebenSat.1 Media properties like kabel eins and ProSieben.
In the late 1990s, the ProSieben Media Group failed to take over German television news channel n-tv, then owned by competitors RTL Group and CNN. Instead, the media group founded a company called N24 Gesellschaft für Nachrichten und Zeitgeschehen after taking over German newswire ddp. The channel was launched on January 24, 2000 at noon, from studios near Munich. In collaboration with Bloomberg Television, N24 provided live coverage of financial markets around the world.
In July 2001, the channel started broadcasts from its new Berlin headquarters. One year later, N24 revamped its schedule, increasing the number of documentaries broadcast and reducing business coverage. The channel unveiled a new on-air design in 2004. This included a new logo and studio. N24 also signed an agreement with CNBC Europe whereby CNBC would provide regular updates from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in German. The reports feature CNBC’s proprietary graphics. In 2007, N24 strengthened its business coverage, introducing daily programmes such as Börse am Mittag ["Stock market Afternoon"] and Börse am Abend ["Stock market Evening"]. The channel moved its headquarters in October 2008.
N24 previously broadcast a variety of programming, with more than seven hours of live programming per business day. CNBC correspondents Silvia Wadhwa, Patricia Szarvas, Roland Klaus, Michael Mross and Bruni Schubert report live from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, the LSE and the NYSE throughout the day. Since August 2010, news programming has been cut back, with no program lasting more than 15 minutes.
